• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

Advertising from Yesteryear…The Tandy 1000 SL Computer

Once upon a time the Tandy Corporation (better known as Radio Shack) controlled a significant portion of the personal computing market, thanks to their easy-to-use PCs and an abundance of stores across North America.  That time has come and gone, first by the phasing out of the Color Computer line, and then as the Tandy 1000 line breathed its last in .

Sometimes an old advertisement or advert comes along, and it speaks to where we once were.  Today’s advertising from yesteryear is for the Tandy 1000 SL, a 5.25″-based computer running a 8086 microprocessor at 8 MHz with an astounding 384K RAM.  Enjoy!
